Rest in peace and may your son return soon to his family, unharmed.” Chief Operating Officer of Pace Pakistan Limited, Raza Khan was saying that Salmaan Taseer was, “A self-made man, who worked through inspiration and enhancing self- belief. Who removed the boundaries and confines developed over time through norms of the corporate world or society, pushing one to think outside the box. He truly brought the warrior out in you, facing every challenge by taking the bull by its horns! Salmaan you will always be missed.”
